Version 5? Webp, hdp, heic, jfif support?

Post by wolfman6a » Wed Sep 23, 2020 8:09 am

Any idea when version 5 will be released? Webp, hdp, heic and other image formats are becoming more prevalent. I have 4000 in one folder and I know some are duplicates, but with different names and different sizes, so I'd like to be able to delete the duplicates with Duplicate Cleaner, but it does not recognize them as of now, so I have to manually hunt and check them, which is annoying!

Thanks

Are these exact duplicates or are these "picture" duplicates?

If the exact, a same content search will find them (& should be quicker too).

Wolfman said they're not same size, so I'm afraid an exact content search won't be of much help.
I'm not aware of how heic and the others handle the pixels, but I don't think that the compression is persistent enough that a similar content search would do any good too.
I'm in the same situation: 38000 heic images waiting for (visual) deduplication :D

I'm therefore also really looking forward to version 5 and would be grateful for any updates on a possible release.
It's no problem for me to wait, we all want a well functioning program after all, but the radio silence is becoming a bit emaciating with the months ticking by. Just some monthly updates on what's being worked on would be really cool!

It's still actively underway! I really hope to get a video up soon, followed by the release of an early access beta, open to all. Development has taken a long time as almost everything has been rebuilt.

Very cool to see, looks great!
And the addition of xxhash is highly appreciated! That's one of the things I had hoped for since the beginning because hashing in general could be called one of my passions - though I must say I don't frequently run into bottlenecks because of it as my data is mostly stored remotely :D
